OK, I used to have this:

2006-toyota-prius.jpg

Toyota Prius Hybrid

I bought it new for $19,000. I put 180,000 miles on it and sold it for $9000. For the life of the car I averaged 45MPG--not quite the 50 they promised.

Now, I have this:

Toyota Highlander Hybrid

It seats 7, has 4WD, and gets ~30MPG. I bought it new (with all the options) for ~$45K.

I will be buying another one, for my wife, shortly.

^ Somebody had kids and had to upgrade...

Boltbat, Being that hybirds are more expensive, but better on gas? Does it even out? Or is it really a money saver?

It depends on the price of gas, how much you drive, and which model you get.

I can tell you for sure that the Prius is a money saver for as much as I drive. The Highlander, not so much since I got ALL the options. But, as gas prices rise, I am more and more glad I got a hybrid.

The next Highlander I buy will be the base model. I really don't need 2 vehicles with DVD players, etc.

Beautiful, fast and economic :P

Base: $92,950

Fully loaded: $101,925

Luckily, they say that they are working from high-end to low end and will have a new model by 2010.

I need a car...

In the words of Ferris Bueller*:

It's a piece of s***. Don't worry about it, I don't even have a piece of s***. I have to envy yours.

*quoted from memory, so it's probably wrong...

I'm a roadster type of person. I would like either a Pontiac Solstice GXP, Saturn Sky Red Line, 2006 Audi TT (IMO they messed up with '07 body-wise), or a Telsa. I didn't say 350Z because the Solstice GXP beats it in all performance aspects and price-wise (and I'm a sucker for GM/Pontiac cars).
